Handcrafted Matcha Bowl + Bamboo Whisk Holder

Handcrafted Matcha Bowl + Bamboo Whisk Holder


We are so proud to release our first batch of custom-made matcha ware. Handcrafted by Japanese-American ceramicist Lisa Tsubouchi, our matcha bowl (chawan) and bamboo whisk holder (kuse naoshi) are available in extremely limited quantities — only 30 units of each piece are available.

Each matcha bowl and bamboo whisk holder was made by Lisa's hands, on the pottery wheel in her Berkeley studio.

Minimally designed, the earthen white clay beautifully showcases the deep and vibrant green hues of freshly whisked matcha. We recommend traditionally preparing our 2020 Limited Edition Tea Master's Reserve, 2020 Limited Edition Tasting Set or Ceremonial Grade in this matcha bowl.

Sold as a set, our handcrafted matcha bowl and bamboo whisk holder are the perfect addition to your growing matcha collection.


  • Handcrafted Matcha Bowl (Chawan)
  • Handcrafted Bamboo Whisk Holder (Kuse Naoshi)
  • Full Color Matcha Handbook 


White earthen clay, half dipped in white glaze. The glaze used showcases slight variation depending on where it sits in the kiln. Thus, each piece is totally unique and impossible to be exactly replicated — no two are alike!


Lisa is a Bay Area Native, a professional event planner, floral designer and potter. Her goal is to create functional beauty with meaning. Whether it’s a wedding, a piece of pottery or a floral arrangement, she is fueled by attention and intention, making her creations memorable and unique.

She has been a member of The Potters’ Studio in Berkeley, CA since 2013 where her main focus has been tumblers and bowls. Lisa is second-generation Japanese on her father's side; Japanese language, culture and customs are a huge part of Lisa's everyday life and identity.


Pieces will vary slightly in size and finish.

Matcha Bowl: ~3.5"H x 5.5"D

Whisk Holder: ~2.75"H x 2.5"D


Dishwasher and microwave safe. Hand washing is recommended with a non-abrasive sponge. White clays are more susceptible to staining. Matcha residue is easily removed with Bar Keepers Friend and other food-safe soft scrub cleaners.


Matcha ware is fulfilled manually in our San Francisco Studio. Please allow 3-7 days to fulfill your order, this does not include shipping time.

2020 Just Got More Matchayyyyyy

Absolutely love my new chawan, and whisk holder! First time spending more than $40 for a chawan so I’m trying my best to be extra careful. It’s also the first time I’ve bought something handmade that was made locally so I wasn’t sure what to expect —is the excess layer of glazing normal? Just wondering out of curiosity☺️ I love the sustainable packing peanuts, and I could tell it was packed with love, and care by the one and only Matcha Queen Jules!!! I do wish that the boxes were a little more sturdy for travel/moving. Still in love, and I have no regrets. Thank you Jade Leaf for such beautiful products! My chawan collection just got more matchay One last also (I promise!) I made matcha in it, and love how deep/wide the chawan is — dare I say my matcha turned out perfect
